The Australia wall hanging is now finished

the Australia wall hanging is now finished and will be photographed in full in May when it hangs in the exhibition, soooooo exciting. But for now here is some of the work which bought me to the finished piece.

this is extraordinary, Jude. I love all the colours, and the sparkly water looks just like the real thing!
I am filled with admiration for your gorgeous stitching, especially now I know just how tricky it can be! ;)
I very much look forward to seeing the hanging in all its glory later on... I am so very glad to see how much you're enjoying this course. So inspirational! :)

Judy! I love to see your work. I like seeing the process. I do those mind map things sometimes too. What fun you are having! I love it all!

Hi Judy, These great samples you have pictured here, can't wait to see the final piece in full glory :)

I love the idea that you have covered the sketchbook with some sample work too, it will allow the reader/viewer some tactile hands on experience! Yx
